Routine maintenance of your burglar alarm installation is vital to ensure the security system is in good order when you need it most.
Regular servicing may seem unnecessary, but experience shows that those who overlook annual intruder alarm servicing learn costly lessons when it is too late.
We highly recommend regular checks on your burglar alarm system by a qualified engineer to ensure your home or business is secure from intruders.
There are many good reasons to keep security devices and alarm systems in good working order all year round.
If you are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a break-in at your home or business, you will feel even worse when you discover that your alarm system has failed to work.
Victims can not only suffer material loss or find valuables missing or trashed but also feel unsafe and insecure for months, sometimes years, following a break-in.
There is little point in paying for a burglar alarm installation only to have it fail at a critical moment merely for want of a bit of care and attention.
Many property insurance policies that cover theft and break-in will insist on a properly maintained security alarm system. An alarm that fails to activate due to inadequate or irregular maintenance could invalidate the policy and be used by the provider to reject any claims for loss of valuables or damage to the property. Regular inspection and maintenance by a qualified engineer are more likely to ensure that any insurance claim in the wake of a break-in will be honoured in full.
Most business premises, retail and commercial, are required to meet fire and safety regulations. Compliance can be compromised by failing to maintain security systems. If a fire were to break out, the alarm bells failed to ring, or an emergency alarm button failed to activate, the consequences could be dire. Employers must keep their staff safe in the workplace. The cost of health and safety investigations following a fire or break-in can be high. Regular maintenance checks on equipment can minimise the risk of high payouts for safety inspections.
We have all been annoyed by alarms going off in the middle of the night or while owners are away and unable to switch them off. False alarms can happen for many reasons, such as power surges and lousy weather, but there is no need to add poor servicing to that list. Routine maintenance will reduce the incidence of false alarms and ensure you do not have to pay a hefty bill for broken alarm callouts at unsocial hours.
No matter which security systems you use, regular maintenance by a professionally qualified engineer is necessary to keep operations in proper working order.
